2ND Set is a stunner- Especially Dancin
TOo bad this is mostly a forgotten show as there is a ton of good music here. One might say the momentum that led to the peak known as the 10/29/77 show started here. Everything is crisp and the band had started to stretch out a bit more from the more formalistic stylings of the spring. Case in point is this second set. Estimated is above Average, Eyes is tasty tasty, and then a Silky transition into Dancin- oh and what a dancin this one is- a total surprise- an almost primal version- listen to it now and be taken aback- this show is well worth the listen.

great overlooked show
Another one of those shows in a peak year like 1977, where its companion show - 10/2, completely overshadows it. Tonight is sort of the warm up, with neither the great song sets nor the longer and more developed jams like Wheel> Truckin> Other One from the second night.
But hey, you can't keep listening to the same handful of great 1977 shows over and over again! This show is a great change of pace for the ears, well played and with that crispy Betty board sound.
Set One features a rare Passenger and a host of other 77 favorites like Cassidy and Peggy O, plus a great Dire Wolf which had only been brought out of retirement 2 nights ago, not since 1974.
Garcia turns on the fuzz and the fire to close Set One with a jumpin Music, then they come back and really groove seriously in the second set. Listening to this now, the playing in Set Two is better than I had remembered it. The Estimated is funky and in the pocket rhythmically (but what is that strange popping/flapping noise briefly on the master?).
Eyes blasts off at a fast pace and ends with a brief Phil solo before leading us into the Dancin riff. Not one of my favorite songs, but this version is quite good, with some tasty guitar work from Jerry at the end. Then the standout for me - Black Peter, not played since the Winterland Oct 1974 shows.
Well worth having and great sound.

Great show, but nobody mentioned the two HUGE cuts in Promised Land and TLEO. Promised Land is pretty much crap(sound problems and such..) and then it cuts into TLEO. Disapointing, but its still worth having. great sound otherwise.
